An interesting quote from member Ed S.
"""by Ed S » Thu Nov 20, 2008 4:54 pm
There are at least six codes not in the Myrvang book: ddx, lww, lwy, btw, gug and dhq. I have all codes except ddx, lww and dhq. That does not mean any one is more rare than the other, it just means that all of them can be a little hard to find and when you do find one it is common for the asking price to be unrealistic. I personally think that mgz40 sights marked cxn are sort of rare. The two most common to find are tan cxn and cme. cme is not a rare code.
I think Folke had a narrow sample of mgz40 sights in Norway when he wrote the book.

lww and lwy are codes of French companies co-opted into making mgz40 sights. gug is a hungarian company."""

which is from this thread -- viewtopic.php?f=24&t=7851

Now my question is where do we find pics of some of the other ones that Ed S. talks about?? Help anyone??
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This first list is of Manufacture's are from our website members which are backed by photos of the Manufacturers Code and serial number on the MG Z 40. Thanks for your support. I'll try to list everyone's names that either offered photos or posted them elsewhere on this site, linking everything together. Please pm corrections to me and I'll update from there.
